"Here in Puerto Rico..."

Ahh, now we understand your plans a bit better. You are no doubt either on PR''s east coast or perhaps it''s south. Either way there are lots of fun sailing venues available to you.

If you have an experienced mentor that is willing to spend time with you on a boat, both ''fixing'' and also ''sailing'', that sounds great.

However, I don''t see a reason to challenge any of the comments you''ve already received about the boat. Can it do what you want? Sure. Is it a ''good'' choice? Within the context of the many other choices that could be available to you, not a very good one. But yes, ''affordable'' and ''well cared for'' are two understandable, important criteria.

We have enjoyed meeting many a PR yachtsmen, both power and sail, and almost without exception found them wishing they had a more meaningful involvement from their families in their boating. I still encourage you to include your own family in your initial efforts, if their later involvement is important to you.
